    Question The Official Thread of Forum Questions

    Assalaamu 'alaykum

    I thought I would make this thread for the collective benefit for everyone since often I've seen questions repeated on similar forum functions and having one FAQ thread might help keep track of and reference what's already been asked bi'ithnillaah.

    I will try to add as many as I remember :


    Threads/Posts:


    How to add name to Quoted posts (i.e. "Originally posted by xyz")


    How to Multi-Quote (Quote Multiple posts at once)

    I could edit my post before, why can't I do it anymore?


    Why did my post get duplicated?



    Control Panel Options (Settings, Reps, Thanks etc)


    How to Rep - not Report!

    - I don't see any pop-up when I click the star (rep) button


    What is a Grey/Gray rep?
    (ps- When I said a user too new to count it means someone under 50 posts)

    I've given out Too much rep in the last 24 hours... How?
    (i.e. Thanks Feature/Rep Limit ... Read down for personal explanation)


    How to see subscriptions in Control Panel

    Why can't I see my sent private messages?


    Forum Functions


    How to Embed Videos

    How to embed images from URLs


    How to change attached image from thumbnail to original size

    How to Change your Avatar

    I keep getting Logged Out!


    Misc.


    Who are the Admins/Mods?

    How to get into the Brothers' Section

    How to get into the Sisters' Section

    IA has inappropriate Ads!

    Is Islamic Awakening Owned by Jews - Why are there two Zionist Symbols in its logo?!




    (too be continued...)

    ______

    Please feel free to add in any I may have missed and also if there are any other questions, they can also be asked here and added in if/when answered insha'Allaah.

    BaarakAllaahu feekum
    I found that sins kill the hearts
    And they bring about humiliation by being addicted to them
    And abandoning sin gives life to the hearts
    And it is better for your soul that you disobey it
    -Abdullah ibn Al-Mubarak-

    This is under the right and careful decision of the admin team and does not concern forum members.

    Sorry, nothing personal ... a thread on the forum just didn't seem right without the requisite mention of Taghut... especially a thread about the forum.

    You have to have connections in high places, that's how they run the streets these days, not like the old days they say.

    I have a question. Is it possible, that when we post a comment, then we can tag certain people who will then be alerted about the post (Similar to the Facebook 'Notes' section). This will be beneficial because if someone is asking a question, he can alert the one it is directed to; or if he mentions someone in a joke, then he can tag them as to not backbite them, and so on.

    If this is available, then please demonstrate how it is done. If not, then it is just a simple suggestion.
    "If all the people are pleased with you but Allah is not, what have you gained?

    If Allah is Pleased with you but no one else is, what have you lost?"

    I demand to become a moderator! I feel I have earned this right for being the most active member from a non-English speaking country. I represent " insert percentage of world population living in non-English speaking societies" !!!

    I'm sorry, this feature is not part of the current vBulletin system. It is an interesting concept, but since the forum does run on a certain system, actual hacking/changing of the actual code would be needed to try to facilitate such a change as far as I am aware. I think it'd be much easier just to utilize the Visitor Messaging/Private Messaging methods and drop the User a note to see the thread?

    Plus, just imagine how some of the more popular users might be overwhelmed and bombarded with notifications if just anyone could tag them. So that might present an inconvenience as well. Many things to factor in, so until and unless vBulletin introduces a function of this on its own, I don't think it will be available here.

    Your suggestion and input is appreciated though, baarakAllaahu feek.
